Default On entering the country

Hi my partner is now in Canada on LMO
I'm looking to join him end of September with our son, I'v just read about a common law form I have to fill in, do I need to still fill this in if I intend to apply for a temporary work visa? (I'm guessing yes)
Thanks Sam

What is your citizenship? How long have you been common law? What is his NOC job code and skill level on the NOC matrix? You may be eligible for a spousal open work permit or you may not. More info required.

We are both British citizens
We been together 5 years
His NOC 72-- (can remember off the top my head) but he's classed as skilled
The company he works for mentioned spouse open work visa, so I guess it's this I need to fill in? Where can I get one off the cic web site?
Thanks

NOC group 72 is skill level B so Yes you can apply for SOWP. You will need some proof of relationship and a copy of your OHs work permit.
You can apply at the Port of Entry and pay the $150 for the work permit and depending on the age of the child a visitor record will be issued to allow child to attend school. Its convincing CBSA that you are common law is the challenge and providing satisfactory evidence of such. Copies of joint bank account statements, mortgage or rental agreements, utility bills etc etc.

so apart from gathering evidence i dont need to fill any forms until i hit canada? also our son is 3. hoping he can attend pre-kindergarden if we can find a school and place.

we dont have a joint accounts we do have tax credits in both our names would these be ok? what else can i provide (apart from a copy of his lmo and work permit/contract) will a written letter from him help at all!?

thanks

Wouldn't the 3 yr old son's birth certificate be rather helpful in establishing common law?
